Key facts

A new chapter for the site

Completion of the Fulhame Building marks the first phase – and first lettable space – of an ongoing transformation programme for the 32-hectare former Michelin Dundee site. Formed to drive growth and diversity in the Scottish economy while also addressing the global climate emergency, MSIP will secure jobs and bring together industry and academia with a focus on sustainable mobility and decarbonisation.

Robertson looks forward to continuing its relationship with MSIP – the next stage in the Innovation Parc’s ambitious, ongoing £20m plan is the delivery of Innovation Labs and a Skills Academy, which will include classrooms, workshops and a 1,750 m2 versatile space for learning and live presentations. A hydrogen production facility and refuelling centre, and community and events spaces are planned for the future.

Sustainability

​The tenants at the Fulhame Building will align with MSIP’s sustainable mobility and decarbonisation mission as it looks to create a greener future, through innovation for people, place and planet.

The transformation of the MSIP site is a key part of our journey to being a world-leading Innovation Parc for sustainable mobility and decarbonisation. We want any new building at MSIP to be mindful of carbon footprint, in the design, build and running of the space. 

– Colin McIlraith, Chief Operating Officer

Adding value at all stages

Working in collaboration with the Procurement Hub Major Projects framework, MSIP and the consultant team, Robertson will ensure all phases of the MISP development project are designed to achieve maximum value for money.

Michelin Dundee has played a pivotal role in the region for years and Robertson will contribute to this legacy through local supply chain employment and delivering the highest possible level of safety and quality.

We are committed to local community engagement throughout the project, including schools, colleges, universities and employability initiatives.
